Awakened Heart Destination Retreats aspire to provide the highest quality retreat + education experience. 

Focusing on a fully integrated model, the retreat is designed to teach you many holistic healing modalities including Breathwork, Yoga, Meditation, Qi-Gong, EFT, Sound Healing, Natural Medicines, and more. 


While most retreat experiences may simply share holistic practices with you and send you on your way, we focus on educating you on these modalities and providing you with online guided experiences after the retreat. This allows you to take the practices and retreat energy home with you, as well as share it with your community.


The Awakened Heart Retreat is designed for those who are ready to fully embody their spiritual/healing journey, make profound progress in their personal evolution, and have alot of fun along the way. 


For those who are ready to release what may be holding them back, Step fully into their highest expression, enjoy like-hearted community, and commit to living their wellbeing,

this retreat is for you!

Working with Ben has been the biggest and greatest gift. His Sonic Neural Breathwork & Dynamic Breathwork sessions have been a real game changer. They showed me how to create an intentional space to heal myself... You can tell Ben is passionate, educated on his teachings, and most of all....compassionate. I'm loving his guided meditations on Insight Timer!  I attended his Sacred Embodiment retreat and it was one of the best experiences of my life!

My first retreat was with Ben Holt in Sedona and I knew it would be transformational. I immediately felt accepted and part of the tribe. There were so many moments of inspiration, joy, and remember during my stay. The connections were real and authentic. Ben and his team were so kind and helpful. My expectations were surpassed by this magical retreat!

Marcia R.

I received a deep heart-opening experience of love for myself and others here. I have been looking for this love for a while and this retreat was a total catalyst to receiving that love. I've learned so much from the men in this container and I connected deeply with all of them which is something that's been very hard to find in the past.

I thoroughly enjoyed my retreat with Ben and Kendyl. They were so intentional and present with everything they put together. I loved the different breathing and meditation techniques we practiced, it’s something I’ve carried with me long after the retreat ended. I also made so many new friends, they really fostered such a strong group connection with the other participants. This was my second retreat and I will definitely be back for a third!

Lead by Ben Holt, Kyle Boyd, Kendyl Thomas, and Leah Rush the Awakened Heart retreat will guide you into the deepest depths of consciousness, awareness, love, and truth that resides within you.


This transformational retreat combines the incredible power of Breathwork, Heart Math techniques, Hypnotherapy, Yoga, Meditation, NLP, Sound Healing, and more. This retreat will not only provide you with a safe space to heal and grow spiritually, mentally, and physically, but it will give you the knowledge, wisdom, and tools necessary for you to continue this growth at an accelerated pace when you leave. 

By combining multiple healing and growth modalities from all over the world, participants can expect to experience a profound speed ramp in conscious awareness, or what we call "Quantum Healing, or Quantum Transformation".

During deep states of awareness, we will explore and learn the fundamental wisdom of the ancients, as well as the profound breakthroughs in modern science that are bridging the gap between spiritual experience and science based data. Providing you with invaluable knowledge and tools that you will be able to apply in every situation for the rest of your life. 

While the experiences we have at the retreats themselves are life-changing, it is the wisdom, knowledge, and tools that you will go home with that will really revolutionize your life experience. Both preparing for, and integrating your experience at the retreat is a primary motive for us.

At Awakened Heart retreats, we have successfully curated a container that is designed not only to evoke, stoke, and nurture the process of your spiritual healing and growth, but to anchor in the frequency of these practices, so that you receive long-lasting mental, emotional, and spiritual health benefits.

We will be there with you every step of the way, guiding and holding space for you as your journey along the path of self-discovery, healing, and expansion. 


You have our complete support

Embarking on the path of self-delivery is a noble cause and one that deserves to be recognized, we devote ourselves to all those that choose to walk the path less traveled, the path of healing, expansion, and evolution.


We commit to being fully present with you before, during, and after your experience and will hold space for whatever unfolds for you during your time here.

You will leave this retreat not only equipped with a new understanding of the yourself, a wide open heart, and a clear mind, but with a loving support system that will be there for you no matter what arises. 

You will leave feeling supported by being integrated into the Connect and Evolve Tribe, community, and family. 

~This is it~

A safe, well-thought-out, and loving container to explore yourself through healing modalities, ancient wisdom, modern science, esoteric therapies, nature, connection, and ultimately, pure love.

 So We Invite You 


We invite you to wake up every morning to the wondrous natural beauty of the rocky mountains, leaves rustling in the wind, sunsets on the gorgeous mountains, butterflies, and hummingbirds at your window...

Start your mornings off with gentle yoga, blissful meditation, and heart-expanding breathwork.

Embark on healing, and consciousness-expanding medicine journeys, connecting Satsangs, enlightening workshops, and of course, integration/sharing circles each night. 


Dine on authentic, delicious cuisine, all fresh, all organic, plant-based, and all mouthwateringly delicious. Breathe in the magic of the land, hike, explore, connect with the breathtaking nature, and finally, end the day with a beautifully relaxing sound bath.

We hope to see you soon and send you love and light! 

~Be Blessed~
